Let's face it, this sdb has pretty sub-par sound compared to other boards from the late 70's. I guess it's kind of a shock it even exists, since for years we all believed there were no sdbs available from this tour. But, here it is. There is one well-circulated AUD (Gatto), but that's not the greatest sounding tape either.
That's why I think this might make a good candidate for a matrix ( are you listening Hunter). The boards hissy and muddy, and the audience is clappy and a little oversaturated. Might just make the worst matrix ever. Oh well, it just seems like too historic a show to wallow in such disrepair. Maybe not historic, but it is a great show---Sugaree, Jack Straw, Miracle, Estimated, Stella, Casey Jones are all great versions.
Thanks to Charlie Miller for doing what he could with the source material---What the hell happened to these tapes anyway???

It's all about Stella Blue
Highlights are Sugaree, Peggy O, Jack Straw, He's Gone, but especially Stella Blue where Jer's guitar gently weeps into a four minute outro solo.
The show itself is stellar, especially considering the "problems" in the organization at the time, and the band shift a month later. Too bad the pitch is off at times, and vocals are often dropped. Not sure if its a recording problem or if they just flubbed. Also Stella Blue thru Casey Jones sounds like an audience heavy matrix. Definitely well balanced though.
Thanks for this classic.
4 for sound
5 for a stellar show
0 for Donna's screaming at the end of Deal (yuck!)
SOLID 4 stars. Thank you Charlie!!!!
